DUBUQUE – The city of Dubuque has a long and expansive history of beer brewing. This history is at the heart of a new exhibit at The National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.
The exhibit is called “DuBREWque:Tapping into Dubuque’s Brewing History” and explains the role of the brewing industry in shaping Dubuque and its economy dating back to the mid 1800’s. But the exhibit isn’t just another history lesson.The collection includes a variety of interactive displays and dozens of artifacts.
Assistant Marketing Manager for the museum, Andrew Brunner, hopes that this lesson on Dubuque culture will appeal to people from a variety of backgrounds.
“A lot of people that have moved to Dubuque recently aren’t really from here… so to learn a little bit about how Dubuque came to be and how it grew into the place it is today is good for all ages.”
DuBREWque is open from February seventh to April twenty-second. The exhibit is free with general admission to the museum. Special paid events will be taking place periodically until the exhibit closes. For more information, click here.
